BandMaster is like having a whole band in your pocket. You get bass, drums and piano, great sounding samples and several styles for each instrument. Song creation is a snap with the available templates. Now you can practice on your own schedule and get that solo down for real.
Your songs are displayed in the song list from where you can launch the playback or edit views. The playback view displays your song's chords in a grid that scrolls down and highlights each measure as it is played. You determine the speed and number of chorusses as well as the style. If you like, you can also turn off any of the instruments. You can even have your band's logo as the background for the playback view.
New songs are created with one of the many templates available. These include exercises and Blues as well as Jazz standard forms of different lengths. Once created songs can then be edited in the edit view. This view gives you full control over the chords in your song. You can add and delete measures, transpose the song or switch to a different time signature. With the unique Expand to Form tool you can create any ABA or AABA form in record time.
A metronome might still come in handy, but practicing with BandMaster is much more to the point and more importantly much more fun and productive. Maybe you need to get a better handle on that Blues in Ab or a brief warm-up with Giant Steps. With BandMaster on your iPhone or iPod touch just pop in those earphones and get going wherever you are. Soloing is an art, but only practice makes the master and for that one should have the right tools.
